[laughter] mehe said can you imagine tayler?elizabeth [laughter] >> when we were trying to change the image of south africa to come out of the apartheid era, one of the tactics we wanted to use was to show the beautiful visualizations of south africa up by getting on tv in many countries around the world. one of madiba's favorite things was when he would meet the 90 girls each year and then, after the second year when the tension of, is the logistic working, we played a little joke on him. we asked all the girls to wear bright colored lipstick. we have a picture of wary as like 40 kisses on his face with all the bright colored lipstick. >> joining us now is the honorable david dinkins, former mayor of new york. >> tell us what you remember of nelson mandela. >> i was a big fan. of course, he help me

very mindful of mr. mandela's health. remind the viewers of what president obama did when he went to south africa several months ago? >> well, again, i wasn't on that trip, but there was oncern, some talk even then. nelson mandela was in failing health at that time. that perhaps his visit to south africa could coincide with nelson mandela, his illness. he didn't go visit directly with nelson mandela at the time. their two lives, given their places in history, have intersected somewhat. we are waiting to hear what president obama says about nelson man tele. would not be surprised to have him appear on camera to discuss his legacy not only in south africa, but in the united states. there is a new movie out now about nelson mandela and his journey from an activist at the african national congress, to his imprisonment, his release and his rise to lead south africa, the incredible rise to lead south africa. no word exactly on what the president can say or when real hear something from president obama. i would think it would be in the not too distance future. not long ago the president him
